North Carolina woman accused of tying up, castrating husband
NEWPORT, N.C. (AP) - Authorities in North Carolina have locked up a woman accused of cutting off her husband's penis.
A news release says 61-year-old James Frabutt told Carteret County deputies his wife, 56-year-old Victoria Thomas Frabutt, tied him up and pulled out a knife early Tuesday morning.
James Frabutt was taken to a Greenville hospital where his condition is unknown. Deputies were able to recover the body part, put it on ice and give it to medical personnel. A motive for the castration is unclear.
Victoria Thomas Frabutt has been charged with kidnapping and malicious castration. She's in jail on a $100,000 bond and has a court hearing scheduled for Wednesday. It's unclear whether she had an attorney who could comment on her behalf.
